"Debbie Reynolds thrusts herself into the role with an enormous amount of verve and vigor." – Variety
Debbie Reynolds stars in one of the most popular of all Broadway musicals. Adventurous, young Molly Tobin (Debbie Reynolds) moves alone to the Colorado mining camp of Leadville with a dream of becoming rich. There, she meets tall and handsome Irish prospector “Leadville” Johnny Brown (Harve Presnell), who soon discovers a gold mine almost as rich as Molly’s ambition. Molly and Johnny are snubbed by Colorado’s social leaders. Undaunted, they set sail for Europe, where Molly educates herself and the couple experience a new and exciting kind of celebrity. Despite their advances in Europe, Molly and Johnny yearn for the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Molly sails for America on the Titanic and becomes an internationally famous heroine, the “Unsinkable” Molly Brown, after her courage during the ship’s disaster.
